It gets better every year at Sands

Bath, United Kingdom

My third consecutive year at Sands, and longing to be back already! The hotel pampers me with upgraded room, Mauritian specialties made especially for me, makes me feel at home, and every member of staff is super attentive and so friendly. The multilingual hotel manager Mr. Kamal does regular walkabouts, as does the head chef Mr. Ashok, to ensure everything runs smoothly and guests are happy. The hotel is small, at the peaceful southernmost end of Flic-en-Flac beach, with a lovely tropical orchard in fruit in the summer months, a baby man-made coral reef that makes it super safe to swim, even though the entire 13 km coastline of Flic-en-Flac is protected by a natural coral reef. On the left is a forest with a rough path that leads to Tamarin Beach, and the hotel garden is full of birds. At dusk one can see giant fruit bats from further inland flying about, a beautiful sight just before the sky is replaced by twinkling stars. Small children are catered for, and there is a lot of water sports and excursions (such as snorkelling, game-fishing, dolphin-watching etc.) for grown-ups, not to mention spa treatments, gym and tennis, and there is a library and function room.

Fantastic Stay At Sands👏👏👏

London, United Kingdom

Anyone looking to visit west side of the island or first time visitor to Mauritius, make sure you pick up this lovely boutique property. Located at the end of flic en Flac area, hotel boasts all kinds of modern amenities, offers great water sporting activities, and food & beverage options. Its bar has extensive cocktail menu , great breakfast and a dinner spread. I felt really privileged to meet number of team members ( concierge, housekeeping, reception, boat house, food and beverage team) who were always wanted to help. Mr. Kamal (GM)and Chef Ashok made sure to talk to us on number of occasions regarding our stay and food quality which was very nice to see. Tip: this hotel boost great lagoon and there is a small rock formation close to the beach. If you snorkel close enough you will see lots of colourful marine life. Also do not miss the sunset as it is spectacular! Thank you Sands team to make our holiday so memorable!!
